The Floor Decor Custom Area Rug Guide
Custom area rugs are an ideal solution for your home. Not only can they express your sense of style, but they can add an element of safety for specific areas such as stairways, protect your floors from heavy foot traffic, provide directional queues in hallways, and create conversational spaces in dining rooms or living areas. You can even opt for wall-to-wall carpet in one area, and coordinating custom rugs in other areas.
Today, most runners and area rugs come in updated styles in addition to traditional oriental patterns. They can easily be custom fit to your dimensions and to accommodate areas such as turns on stairs and landings.
If you have questions specific to pricing, we invite you to check out the Pricing Guide section on Carpet.
This custom area rug guide outlines options and possibilities. Below, you'll find sections organized according to area rug brands, categories, visualizers available, and testimonials from customers like you who chose custom area rugs for their homes.
If you are looking for pre-sized area rug options, we invite you to explore the Paradiso Area Rug Collection catalog.

What Customers Say About Custom Area Rugs From Floor Decor
You can't get any better!
Floor Decor recently installed carpeting for me.
The work I had done was very complicated and meticulous, involving a lot of custom cuts. The technician did a beautiful job and I could not have asked for anything better.
I have purchased area rugs and runners from Floor Decor in the past and they have always been good to me, so I knew I wanted to work with them for this big project. I did not shop around but the price seemed fine to me.
I recommend Floor Decor for excellent service and workmanship
Barbara M. Milford, CT
Floor Decor sells fine quality products.
We bought a 9x12 area rug, but it's big, and we got carpet in the hallway and on the stairs, both downstairs and upstairs. I got it put in a few weeks ago.
They also installed the carpeting for me, and it went excellently. The guys that came out were very professional, I have to say that. They cleaned up thoroughly after themselves and they even vacuumed everything when they were done. I have no complaints whatsoever and we are very pleased with Floor Decor.
Jen F. Milford, CT
I had an excellent experience with Floor Decor.
Janine helped me pick a runner for my stairs and a matching area rug. She had excellent customer service. She was friendly and not pushy with the sales.
I wasn't sure what I wanted when I went in, and Janine was able to find something I liked, based on my description.
The installers were also very helpful. They arrived promptly and had a clean and neat installation. I would recommend their services.
